Universal Children's Day


The United Nations Universal Children’s Day was established in 1954. It is celebrated on November 20th each year to promote international togetherness, awareness among children worldwide, and improving children's welfare.

November 20th is an important date. It is when the General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child in 1959, and then adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1989.

The day is for everybody! Everyone can play an important part in making Universal Children's Day relevant for their societies, communities and nations.

Universal Children's Day offers each of us an inspirational entry-point to advocate, promote and celebrate children's rights, translating into dialogues and actions that will build a better world for Children.

Join us and contribute to the conversation by recognizing Universal Children's Day.
